    Hey buddy, the Bears are flawed too. So are the Cowboys and Rams.

    Zero sacks, zero forced fumbles, was shut down by Jason Peters.

    He’s getting crucified on Twitter right now, all the Von Miller comparisons and such.

    You don't get many other chances if you miss a total of 10 kicks in one season. Another thing that hurts him is his limited range.

    It would have been worse against Lane. Is this a credit to Peters or simply a fact of Mack not showing up

    Hes a fantastic 50+ kicker. No idea why he struggles 40-49.

    I still think he'll find a job. Definitely not with Chicago, but I'm not sure he would have been back even if he made that kick.

    He has a legitimate argument, to me, for being DPOY over Aaron Donald. Not that I would vote for him but he made that much of a difference for Chicago compared to last season without him.

    He should receive a little flack but I wouldn't go overboard. They still nearly won without him showing up in only his second playoff game.

    It's 'bout time he takes his share of the blame.

    Nice to know you have crystal ball. The Cowboys aren't beating the Rams either.

    The Bears are every bit as flawed as the Eagles, they just had an insane defence and a hilariously easy schedule. They had no notable wins on the season and lost to the Giants.

    I.... just don't get the Eagles.

    If it's really as simple as Nick Foles, they may have to keep him ala Frank Reich back in the day with Buffalo.

    Dallas can beat the Rams. Wouldn't surprise me at all. Especially since that won't be a real road game for them.

    They could, but highly unlikely. I don't think the Cowboys will be able to score 30 points, which is probably what they will need.

    I guess defense doesn't matter in the NFL if the #1 ranked defense can't stop a career backup

    I don't think the Rams are scoring 30.

    I forgot about the Rams. I didn't consider the Seahawks win notable because they were trash at the time. It would be like beating the Colts at the start of the season. The Rams win though was definitely notable and impressive. The fact is though the Bears had the 2nd easiest schedule in all of football and were not as good as their record showed as they got a ton of inconsistent play from their offence.

    I could hear it hit the crossbar but you could’ve see which way it went.

    Beating the Rams on the road with Foles re-entering the fold and the Rams coming off the Bears loss.
